- This is My Hour!
If a Companion is in the same region as a FSP army is he automatically assumed to be a part of that army when it is attacked?
"Note that all defending units, including Leaders and Characters, are allways considered to be part of the battle."
If the region is attacked and the FSP army eliminated is the companion also eliminated or can a player decide before the region is attacked that the companion is NOT a part of the army (and therefore avoid him being eliminated)?
The Companion(s) (or Minion(s)) is eliminated with the Army, see above rules quote as well as:
"Elimination of Leaders and Characters
If all the Army units involved in a battle are eliminated, then all Leaders (including Characters) that were part of that Army are also immideately removed from play."
If the region has a stronghold and the army and companion retreat - then if the army is destroyed is the companion also eliminated - or can he decide not to take part in the battle and then escape afterwards?
The Character is eliminated along with the Army, see previous answers.
